WebCam Moves to the Front Room

I like peeking at traffic cams in other countries. So today I've moved the webcam to the front window with a view of the street. You'll see my neighbours parking their cars and walking home. There's more traffic around 5pm (PST) when people head home from work, but there's activity outside all day long and you'll get some idea of what the weather is like here today.

I'm using a 10m FireWire cable to reach the living room, and I notice the image is not very crisp. I'll be working to improve the image quality, add motion detection, and have each new image refresh over the old image. Look for improvements in the weeks to come.
